**Lion on the Mountain**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hi everyone! I wanted to share the newest addition to my collection! This is a 2014 $5 Fine Silver Coin from the Bank Note Series: Lion on the Mountain. It is 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 36 millimeters and a weight of 23.17 grams. The reverse image recreates the vignette of a lion on a mountain from a design of the early twentieth century by the British American Banknote Company. The obverse shows Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll designed by Susanna Blunt. This coin was struck by the Royal Canadian Mint and has a limit of 8500. (Mine is #4355)... ; ) As some of you might know the lion theme is one of my favorites and fills quite a few spaces in my coin boxes! haha I would love to find one of original bank notes depicting my Lion on the Mountain coin! Keep searching right! Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome.

Nice indeed. It would be nice if the issuer hadn't cancelled the note (those holes at the bottom). SPECIMEN was more than enough to comply with anti-counterfeit laws. I really like the design and vivid colors.
